Trauma Informed Task Follow-Through WORKSHOP

Many times over, I have been asked to teach specifically about FOLLOW THROUGH. 

I’ve touched on it here and there but never really felt like diving in deep, until now!

The Trauma Informed Task Follow Through Workshop is here.

This workshop is literally for anyone who has ever NOT completed a task.

But, to help you narrow down it down even more, I've tailored the teachings in here to specifically support anyone who answers YES to any of these 4 questions!

Is task follow through often traumatic for you? 

  • Do you set goals and then forget they exist?

  • Do you look at your to-do lists and think “Nope, not today!”?

  • Have you ever made a plan, started it, and then abandoned it part way through?

  • Do you have endless to-do lists that you know you’ll never be able to complete (or want to complete)?


I say… To-do lists aren’t written in stone.

Follow through isn’t determined by how much you get done.

Tasks aren’t all meant to be completed.

None of this is required to be successful at following through on your to-do lists.


Here’s my unfiltered opinion:

We subconsciously associate task follow-through with trauma, the same way ADHDers/non-neurotypical humans associate going through school with trauma.

  • I experienced physical and emotional bullying in high school.

  • I was put in the “slow” math class even though I achieved 98% on my final grade the previous year.

  • I was told by the director of student diversity (at the time it was called the Office for Students with Disabilities) that I was too smart to receive exam accommodations, even though I was failing all my exams.

  • I’ve been aggressively shushed by profs because I was taking the “wrong” way to answer a given question.


The super messed up part about all of this is that these 4 experiences put me in the MAJORITY of ADHD/non-neurotypical humans.

This is what I mean by an education based society that normalizes trauma. It’s sickening.

And it’s the same with adulting and task follow-through. 

  • I’ve been shamed many times over for making to-do lists that sit on my desk for months and longer.

  • I’ve sat for hours, days, weeks, months on end, ruminating in analysis paralysis because I didn’t organize my linen closet… leading to even more tasks being left not done.

  • I wrote out “perfectly” curated lists in hopes that if I achieved them, I’d be promoted. Instead, I couldn’t keep up with my own unrealistic expectations and was gaslighted by my boss. I chose to quit, was extremely traumatized, and didn’t work a steady job for almost a year (out of fear for my own inability to follow through).

  • I’ve listened to non-ADHD humans explain things in ways that are too linear and narrowly focused on “one right way”, they make it impossible for ADHD/non-neurotypicals to follow, let alone get started.

The even more messed up fact here: these 4 experiences actually put me in the majority of people (all humankind).


And this is what I mean by a culture that insists on task follow-through while also normalizing trauma.

And do you know why a culture of trauma continues to persist?

Because we’ve always been taught, “this is the way to do it.” “Follow the rules.” “Don’t deviate or you’ll fail.”

This puts us in extremely confining restraints. 

We have to stop allowing ourselves to believe, “This is how it has to be done.”

You can set goals, make lists, and follow through WITHOUT trauma.

You can achieve things with JOY and genuine MOTIVATION, without beating yourself up.

Even the BIGGEST, seemingly most challenging tasks.


I’m going to show you how it’s done.
